This District Grant with matching funds will provide 2 Haemodialysis Machines and accessories to the San Luis Rio Colorado General Hospital in San Luis Rio Colorado, Sonora Mexico. This Grant is the collaboration of a number of Rotary clubs with a goal of raising $25,000 with a matching Grant from Rotary International. The anticipated completion date is December 2014. La Mesa Rotary will donate $800 cash plus $800 DDF pledge to Global Grant G615. Along with a separate $1,880 donation from La Mesa Rotary member Terry Caseter, this completes the funding for this project and allows it to be submitted for DDF approval to the DRFC on April 1. The primary partner for this Grant is the Rotary Club of San Luis Rio Colorado and the Imperial Valley Breakfast Club. The city of San Luis Rio Colorado is a border town located 20 miles south of Yuma, AZ with a population of 200,000. These Haemodialysis Machines would afford these low income patients the opportunity for a transplant in the future. Attention Rotary Baseball fans!
